A pair of Blues

Evening all, I'm back again, bit like a bus me really hey?  Hope you're enjoying a few extra days off, thats if you're lucky enough to and thinking of those in the 24/7 services.

Well what's new?  I'm learning knitting!  I'm actually doing ok!  Several have tried to teach me but it just didn't click.  The ladies at a dementia day centre tried and laughed lots that I just couldn't get it, my Nan has attempted a few times without success but Miss Mookins started knitting club at home and she could do it I thought I'd better learn so I can actually help her.  Had a mooch round you tube and what I found is that there are lots of different ways and I had too search around until I found one I could follow, I think its very much each to their own and you'll find one that suits you.  I'm currently making a headband/ear warmers, only a couple of holes so far so I'm getting better!

Anyway I have 2 cards for you tonight.  Yes I'm joined again by Miss Moo who loves colouring in all my images, stash raider!

The first one is a new image called Mornings by Jeremiah Ketner available as a digi from Crafts & Me.  I LOVED colouring this one in, I could see her as a monotone but she looks awesome in any colour combo, have fun with this one as she is a pleasure to colour. I did this one with promarkers.
I asked on the Facebook group how I should put the card together, lots of bitty bobs or keep it simple and the latter was the consensus.  The white card I just doodled on with an acrylic pen.  The stars I filled in with a sakura glue pen and added glamour dust crystal glitter, I also added to the flowers.  I went round the edges with distress inks as this makes the image pop out.  I use the distress ink tool and pads and pull from the outside in starting with the lightest colour (broken china) and ending with black, I don't have a black distress so just use the brilliance ink.




I'd like to enter into....







Next up is one from Miss Moo who has informed me she is now 6 and 3/4!  She loves entering challenges, she gets so excited reading her comments.  She was let loose with some flexmarkers, think she did a great job, she's very funny about going over the lines and tuts at me when I do haha!  This one is Glowing Love Boy by Sara Burrier from Crafts & Me.  The background is a fab set also from Crafts & Me here.  They're lovely printables, this one was coloured a different way so I use an online editor like Pixlr and change the colour settings then save a new version.  That way the papers go much further and you will always have something that matches your project as if you're anything like me you always colour first then rummage round trying to find things to match!




Molly would like to enter into....





Thanks for stopping by x
